Appreciating every minute

The patients enjoyed the "holiday collages" we did last time so much, 
that yesterday we brought in cardboard stars for them to decorate 
and put on the tree. 
 It was a big group and rather chaotic 
but (mostly) everyone had a great time. 

As I left yesterday, I couldn't help feeling overwhelmingly sad. 
For most of them, 
the holiday will come and go and they won't even know. 
I am so grateful to have this opportunity to work with these folks.
It makes me appreciate every minute of my very full life! 

Happy Holidays 
to everyone out there 
who has an Alzheimer patient in their lives. 
May God Bless you!

  1. These are wonderful, Nancy. I so admire what you do and my sister in law is in the early stages of Alzheimer's and it is so sad.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family
